That's a smart move. I wish I could do that but I can't even get a credit card. I hope I can start some credit for when I get a new truck soon.

Abita Springs here.

I've been cutting some lawns since just before Katrina hit. That was my first summer to attempt the business. I had sold a 21 year business I had one week before Katrina.

My thoughts and intentions were to build the lawn business. I've only three weekly customers and three other 10 to 14 day jobs. Not good at all.

5 customers in Covington, 1 in Abita Springs

Guess I need to either find some of you who are looking for help, or looking to sub out some lawns. All my accounts are 1 acre and more. Spending 1.25 hours per lawn. Total job. Solo.

Is there a PM feature on the site? I'm not seeing it if so.

Hey kajun, how's it going? I'm picking up some notched high lift blades for my exmark. I hear they work better than the mulch blades. I'll update when I get them.
